Hello and thanks for visiting IronFiremen.com My name is Willie Wines Jr and I am the author of the site. Obviously, I am a Professional Firefighter (Captain) and I work in a City located in South West Va. I began blogging a fews years back while assigned to Station #9. The Station (3 shifts) went in together and ran a blog that we hoped would give everyone a look into “firehouse life”. The blog is now dorment due to the Station being shut down (closed and consolidated) but you can still view the site here. I was moved to Station #3 but decided not to participate in their blog but rather start a new one of my own (The Station #3 Blog was not updated regularly and I didn’t want it to seem as if I were “taking over” ).
I wanted a site that wasn’t attached to a station or our Department so I could post more of my personal thoughts, opinions and emotions without conflict to my work place (or fear of disipline / retaliation). I shuffled many names through my mind and wanted to assure I paid respect to the Firemen who came, served and fell before me. Wooden Ladders and Iron Firemen was born on a “Blogspot” address.
